Thinking like an architect isn't easy!
This morning my son and I sat down after breakfast to talk about his assignment for Uni. He has to design a monument so we were throwing about some ideas together.
Some architectural feats are quite amazing to look at but so much of creative and logical thinking goes into it.
I am a logical thinker so the logic side of it comes easy - is this viable, is this symmetrical, is this sturdy etc etc.
But creative thinking - that was quite an eye opener for me - thinking in terms of what I want the viewer to imagine and experience and not taking a topic or idea in it's literal sense - all very confusing. Thinking like an architect is definitely not easy for me.
And as we're on the topic of architecture, my words this week for 6 Word Saturday ties in very nicely with the Thursday Photo Challenge prompt of "Modern" (Contemporary, Fashionable, Architecture, Interiors, Advanced, Cool,...)
So here it is ... The Wellington Central Library - Modern Architecture - quite interesting to look at.
Also showcasing this for Sunday's in my city
Not sure what the architect was thinking or what he wanted us to imagine - but I always think of water when I look at the building - bluish colour, bands and the curve.
Modern Architecture nestled among the old.

The pillars of the entrance made to look like Nikau palms.
